The headquarters of UNESCO in Paris house one of te most fascinating and extraordinary art collection in the world. This UNESCO collection was neither planned nor curated by anyone. It came about through gifts from artists, representatives of the member states, visitors and personalities who wanted to support UNESCO’s aims in this way. The collection is global and, unencumbered by any thematic constraints, includes all kinds of styles and forms of expression. This wide range reflects UNESCO’s philosophy of “Building a Culture of Peace” perfectly.
„With the greatest respect for the creative geniuses behind these works of art, I have tried in this project to add a new interpretative facet to these masterpieces in my visual language. I am honoured to have entered into an intellectual and artistic photographic dialogue with them“, Lois Lammerhuber recounts.
